Conference Recognizes Sophomore Attackman, Senior Long Stick Midfielder
MADISON, N.J. — The same two Goucher players were who named the top performers in the Landmark Conference for the sport of men's lacrosse for March 8-14 are the recipients of the identical honors for the seven-day period ending March 28: sophomore attackman Rory Averett (Ivyland, Pa./Council Rock North) was chosen Offensive Player of the Week and senior long stick midfielder David Jadin (Chanhassen, Minn./The Blake School) was selected Defensive Player of the Week.
Averett scored seven goals — the most in a game by a Goucher player in more than six years — in leading the Gophers to an 11-7 Landmark Conference victory over Susquehanna on March 27. Four days earlier, he turned in a three-goal, one-assist performance in a 13-12 loss to Eastern Connecticut St.
Averett's two-game totals for the week: 10 goals on 23 shots, one assist, five ground balls and two caused turnovers. In addition, he extended his personal goal-scoring streak to 24 games.
Against the Crusaders, Jadin was credited with 10 ground balls and a career-high six caused turnovers. He collected seven ground balls and forced one turnover when the Gophers faced the Warriors.
